an interesting month with a few scarce Plovers to boot

Permalink 18:42:58, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Having been away for most of September it was nice to get out and about again but what I didn't count on was a computer disaster, a corrupt hard drive that cause problems in my backup disc as well - have been able to resurrect a lot of the data but still have a lot missing yet to be recovered.

Still October was a golden month so I shall start with the best first.....


Spur-winged Plover - only the third record for Bahrain - I saw the previous one some twenty years ago
